Drank 7.19.14, on-tap at Drop Off Service in the East Village.
A: Dark mahogany brown, with a deep red highlights. Thick and creamy one finger head, dark tan in color, fades to a moderate cap. Nice pitting, leaves tons of lace throughout the entire glass.
S: Roasted malt, with undertones of smoke and chocolate/caramel. Fairly hoppy and bitter for a porter, but it works reasonably well.
T: Roasted dark malt dominates, subtle dark fruit flavors, and a lingering smoke flavor. Was really expecting a deeper, more complex taste.
M:Moderate carbonation, fairly thin for a bigger porter (was expecting something more from Stone). Smooth up front, smooth in the middle, and a bitter finish.
O: As a porter alone, it is fine enough...tasty in its own right, but not something I would reach for over Founders/Great Lakes/Deschutes. As a "smoked" porter? I am left underwhelmed. I would have assumed the smoke would be much more robust and ingrained.
